Founded in 1961, the Alderney Chamber of Commerce has grown from strength to strength and is now widely acknowledged as the official voice of Alderney’s business community.
Its current membership of some 160 Alderney-based companies represents a large portion of the island’s thriving business community, encompassing: Finance, Legal, Medical, E-Commerce, Building Trade, Hospitality and Tourism, Transport, Professional Services, Retail and Wholesale, Media, Marine and Energy Supplies and many other commercial activities.
The role of the Alderney Chamber of Commerce is to act as a vital link between the States of Alderney and the island’s business community and to represent its diverse membership in all areas. Its aim however is not just to challenge and react to issues in Government, but to assist in the proactive development of real business opportunities on the island.
Chamber’s structure is based on an elected Council which in turn appoints Sub-Committees to deal with specific issues. All Council and Sub-Committee members act on a purely voluntary basis and receive no remuneration. The Chamber’s Council meets every second Tuesday evening of the month. The Sub-Committees meet as and when required, to deal with specific issues and report directly to the Council.
The Alderney Chamber of Commerce welcomes new members and actively encourages new business ventures which will contribute to the island’s economy and its unique quality of life. Join our ever-growing Chamber and support our aim of ensuring that local business remains as the centrepiece of our community.
The Benefits of the Alderney Chamber of Commerce Membership: For less than 50 pence a week your business can join the largest representative group on the island.
